will join us for a live rare interview and together we're going to hold president obama accountable for the tall tales at the state of the union address and fact checked the speech and president obama was quote, cherry picking when it comes to the facts and here are the biggest mistruths. watch this. after years of grueling recession, our businesses have created over 6 million new jobs. after shedding jobs for more than 10 years, our manufacturers have added about 500,000 jobs over the past. >> and we wish the numbers he threw out were true, but unfortunately as many fact checkers pointed out today, those numbers are not even close and of course, president obama also failed to mention that unemployment is higher today than the day he took office. and those are the not the only questionable figures that he tossed around last night. let's watch this. >> over the last few years, both parties have worked together to reduce the deficits by more than 2.5 trillion dollars. mostly through spending cuts, but also by raising tax rates on the wealthiest 1% of americans. as a result, we are mor
. well, that's what obamaments. that's what this guy wants too. we have all of these things that have happened in the past where he has been -- does some things that other members have not done. there's a lot of reasons to oppose him. those are my reasons, but senator cruz is entitled for what he's asking for, and we are doing all we can to get it. lou: saint -- he is entitled to what he wants, but are you pleased with where we are now? do you suspect as a result of where we are that senator hagel will be confirmed or not? >> i can't tell you that, lou. you know, we are counting votes right now. you told me something i was not aware of that susan is going to oppose him. that's good news to me because it's going to be a downhill one vote. lou: one vote. do we have the senator's statement here that we can share with the audience and senator inhofe? have you got it? all right. here we go. this is her position now. senator inn hof. i don't know if you why see it, but "i'm unable to support senator hagel to be the secretary of defense because i do not believe his positions, votes, and stat
hedge fund. >> hello, everybody. tonight on "the willis report."y >> president obama hits the road tonight to ponromote all of his federal spending programs.night shou i >> nothing should increase the deficit by a single time.me. also, the plan to hike the minimum wage to $9 per hour. ho. a boost to the economy, or a eco jobs killer. i will break it down.l presidens latest plan keep your money safe? "the willis report" is on the case. gerri: all of that and more coming up. but first, call him the magician in chief. president obama is proposing tens of billions of dollars in new spending. he says that won't cost us a dime. now, that really is magic. fresh off the state of the union speech, the president hit the road today to push his new economic agea that looks exactly like his old economic agenda. dozens of new federal spending programs. from the federal education program, building homes in rundown neighborhoods all over the country. the estimates of this the cost her at least $130 billion. on top of what we already owe. who really knows? not even theresident. he has encountered i
, the obama am cane attacked mitt romney for investments and shelters money. lew urged congress to stop the sequester suggesting cuts pose self-inflicted wounds to the economy. on a second term priority, one said president obama must lead. >> i hear the president talking about raising revenue through tax reform. to me, if you get economic growth, it's new revenue, but the old-fashioned way. that ought to be the goal. >> conservatives like jeff sessions are angry about lew's testimony in 2011 as budget director. >> senator, i think it's an accurate statement our current spending will not increase the debt. we stopped spendsmoney that we don't have. we just can't wish the debt away. >> sessions so mad, accused lew of deliberate deception with the comment. it might not be enough to stop the nomination in the committee, but could lead to fireworks on the senate floor, lou? lou: quite a statement from jack lew. let alone economists will be going through that one for awhole.. the president renewi his calls for immigration reform during the state of the union address. the department ofhomeland
for the libyan government that obama himself called the next day to ask for help with the investigation and the rest of it. graham is up for re-election in 2014, and he has been successful pressing the bengahzi story for as much as possible. again that's what his interest and concern is. he wants to go back to home state voters and say i stuck it to the president on this. i consider it to be as bad as watergate, and so he has no incentive whatsoever to stop doing that until the very last minute. that hasn't approached yet. >> michael: now, it's worth pointing out not only is graham up for re-election but it looks like he's going to get a primary as well. to see as right of the president as he possibly can seems like a good path for him to take. let's go to the president. what does this bode for the president's second term if he has this much trouble getting his nominees past of the democratic senate. >> it's funny you ask this. this all is playing out the same week that the president gave his state of the union dress to which he laid out a very ambitious liberal laundry list of things h
will shake out. it's just the beginning of the term for mr obama, which i am really glad that we have a black president for the first time and that is doing a really great. great i do approve democracy 100%. i am a democrat. in regard to the two points. are you still there? host: a if you could get to the minimum wage. caller: bringing to the minimum wage up to $9 and ours is kind of high. -- $9 an hour. if we look at an increase of $1.50, that's a burden to employers, even if you have one employee. we have seen increases in the minimum wage throughout history. typically it does not go up a whole dollar. it does not make much sense in regard to the cost of living and [indiscernible] . it's not going to help. i think the minimum wage needs to be increased. it should not be more than 95 cents. there are a lot of rules. host: i think we get your point. dawn is in florida. caller: i totally support the increase in minimum wage. i work for fortune 500 grocery chain that's in the top 100. i make $9 an hour. they make billions a year. i an a cashier.i sca i scan food all day that i cannot afford to
'm tempted to describe president obama's spending and tax ideas as small ball, but they're worse than that. they represent a conscious decision to neglect some of the most pressing issues that confront our country. you might even say it's a dereliction of duty in the battle to save america. last week, the congressional budget office projected that our gross national debt will increase from $16 trillion in 2012 to $26 trillion in 2023. now, that may seem like a long way off, but just since president obama has been president, the national debt's gone up by 55%, just in the last four years. but if you project that forward to 2023 when some of these young men and women who are working here as pages will be looking at entering the work force and looking at their futures, all they will see ahead of them is debt and a reduced standard of living. this is what lies ahead for all of us unless we embrace real spending cuts and unless we deal with the unfunded liabilities of medicare and social security. now, president obama has a secret strategy for getting our debt under control, we'd all love to he
presented to the senate not passed by a long way. how is this for energy policy. president obama wants energy companies to pay for green energy. 2 billion dollars worth. new fees imposed on private industry, oil companies to pay for government sponsored programs. will that help spur growth? don't forget about those liberal environmentalists, a few dozen of them arrested yesterday at the white house. a very small group of people making very big headlines in the mainstream media. a hollywood actress, a kennedy. they don't even want-- they do not want the keystone pipeline, we're going to meet one of the protesters top of the coming hour. all right, where is the price of oil this morning? we're up $97 a barrel. where is the price of gas? up again, in fact, the spike continues. we are now at $3.62 a gallon. are we headed towards $4. we'll have an answer to that very good question next.

. then president obama discusses job creation. and new guidelines on cyber security. we'll get to jack lew's confirmation in a moment. first the cbo director douglas elmendorf testimony. he warned of the sequester could cost 750,000 jobs. >> could you tell me in terms of the negative economic impact of the sequester, the .6%, what does that translate in point of lost jobs? >> our estimate is that the sequester alone would reduce gdp growth this year by zero point six percentage points. it would lower that gdp at the end of the year. we think that would reduce by about 750,000 jobs. >> 750,000 jobs between now and the end of 2013, right? >> right. >> that is a whole lot of jobs. we should be working overtime to prevent that kind of job loss. if you were to replace the deficit reduction through that austerity program, the cuts to the sequester with a plan that accomplishes the same amount of deficit reduction spread over the 10 year period, you would not have that hit on jobs? >> right. >> our analysis, the republican leader, mr. cantor had it right last september when he said that if we all

' day, at 9 p.m. eastern and pacific on c-span, c-span radio and c-span.org. >> president obama has signed an executive order establishing voluntary cybersecurity standards that would improve information sharing and bolster collaborative efforts among federal agencies and the private sector. this briefing is 40 minutes. >> good morning, everyone. welcome to the department of commerce. i understand there's still some at the line out there because this is the place to be. the first -- i'm delighted to see the crowd here and delighted to have a chance to be here for part of this important announcement. i want to acknowledge just a few people in the audience. i do stand a large number of congressional staff representing both the senate and the house of representatives, and i think all of you for coming back and also want to particularly acknowledged cam kerry. where is cam? you somewhere here. cam has led the department of commerce's efforts in terms of cybersecurity and in terms of our involvement with all of it. it is cam's work and want to thank you for that, for being here today whe
came up -- it was october, i believe -- what did president obama say? it will not happen. the sequester will not happen. and here we are with no plan to fix it from the white house, no plan to fix it from the democratic majority, who apparently wants to lead this country, wants to be in the majority, wants to justify their leadership position. senator reid has not brought forth, unless it is today -- until this late, late minute, a plan to fix the sequester, an alteration. we've seen the outline, a one one-page outline, but that's it. i would just note -- i think i indicated -- the house has already twice passed legislation months ago that would fix the sequester and not allow this event to occur in the way that it is. they've done their duty. so what's the senate going to do? what are we going to have from the senate? another do-nothing, no budget, no fix to economic threats of america, now no fix to the sequester? the only think w thing we have w is raise taxes? well, the truth is, the way to fix this, the way to do this is to have all the departments and agencies of the government be
coming at us. we got dodd-frank, which isn't out yet, really. and we got obama care. and obama care, when you look at the complexities in that plan, health care costs are going to go up, they're not going to go down. and you've got temporary workers to deal with. retail has got a hell of a problem. going from 35 hours a week to 30 hours a week for a temporary employee. if you've got 50 employees. you want 49. there's so many complexities in these two things. so my concern about acceleration, is regulatory. warren may have a different view of that. >> interesting thing is i agree with everything jack has said, but it's -- it's i don't come away as pessimistic as he does. but he's absolutely right about, you know, about what's happening with health care, and everything. i don't disagree with a word that he said. that he said. >> and i'm not pessimistic, warren. i'm not pessimistic. i just think we -- we're at a position where we could really take off if we had the right policies. >> yeah. well i -- i -- the interesting thing kind of is that america really is doing better than the rest of th

true there is no way the obama administration would improve this, interfering in merger talks all over. >> will be difficult to stop this merger from the department of justice, there is little overlap. the system is complementary. they will firm up with this merger, that is just going to strengthen the industry as we have rationalization of seats. tracy: we have yet to find an airline deal that works to our benefit? from continental, delta, northwest, prices go up, bags get lost and a lot of disgruntled passengers. >> the hard part u.s. airways begins now. integrating these two systems. as far as the stock goes, i tell people to buy on anticipation of the merger, on announcement sell. it is a rough one or two years as they turn into two diverse systems. would be beneficial for everybody. remember a couple years ago when airline ticket prices were cheaper, they were losing money. you have to have an industry that makes money if you want to launch a viable system. dennis: their roots are not overlapping at all. they are complementary which means they don't have as much market power to ra
